A sharp interface capturing method was presented to simulate free surface flow over a stationary obstacle. The efficient interface preserving level set method was used and immersed boundary method was interpolated to handle the air-water and solid-fluid interface. The artificial momentum forcing term was applied at computational nodes where the solid obstacle presented to solve the velocity field, accounting for the impact of the obstacle. The upwinding combined compact difference scheme was adapted to approximate spatial derivative terms in level set function in order to accurately predict the air-water interface. The re-initialization equation for distance function was used to ensure interface front with a very thin thickness. The pressure field of Navier-Stokes equations was effectively solved by the projection method. Two typical cases of the flow propagating over different obstacles, including rectangular and circular cross-sections, were simulated by the method. The numerical results accorded well with the experimental results. The method can accurately simulate the complicated free surface flow with good stability.
